The Genealogist.co.uk - April news

Thanks to Beth Snow at TheGenealogist (www.thegenealogist.co.uk) for the following news update:

1.5 Million Parish Records Added

For the first time, we have recently added over 1.5 Million Parish Records covering various counties across the country including Berkshire, Cumberland, Devon, Lancashire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire, Westmorland, Worcestershire & Yorkshire.

These Parish Record Transcripts include Baptisms, Marriages, Marriage Banns and Burials spanning 600 years, ranging from 1394-2009.

Illustrated London News from 1842-1862

For the first time The Illustrated London News is available online from 1842-1862 on TheGenealogist. Covering International and National events, it gives us a great insight into the lives of our ancestors. Not only do these papers give detailed reports on the goings on around the World, but you will also find notices of Births, Marriages and Deaths, Wills and Bequests along with beautiful illustrations. The records are fully searchable, and have bookmarks for articles and sections.

[One such major event was The Great Exhibition in 1851, which the Crystal Palace was built to hold]

FREE ACCESS to Passenger Lists

We are offering free access to our Titanic crew & passenger lists. These are searchable by name or you can browse by class (1st, 2nd, 3rd, Crew). The records contain a large amount of information about survivors and of those who didn’t make it. Simply go to TheGenealogist.co.uk and register for free.

Overseas BMDs

Over 300,000 transcripts have been added to complete our Overseas Birth Marriage and Deaths of British Service Personnel throughout the world.

Welsh Historical Records

These cover West Wales for variety of different resources such as Baptisms, Marriage Bonds, Burials, Gentry records and more.
